Q:  Dear Zeus,

I know you're a god and all, and you're supposed to be really strong and powerful and without weakness, but don't you ever just need to take a nap?

Michelle Swingle

A:  Need to take a nap?  Need?  That's like asking Kurt Cobain if he needed a second shotgun.  Come on.  I'm a god.  Gods don't need naps.  We do, however, take naps.  What's the point of being the ruler of the celestial realms without a bit of lazy lounging about?

Q:  Dear Zeus,

If a tree falls in the woods and there is no one there to here it, does it make a noise?

A:  First, a spelling lesson.  The word is hear, dear.  :)  As for your answer, if the tree is in the woods, there is always someone there to hear it.  Plants hear amazingly well.  The sound vibrations are picked up by its leaves or needles and carried through its central nervous system.  The more leaves/needles a plant has, the better it hears.  Some of the larger redwoods can hear a toilet flush from a thousand miles away!  Be aware that this is more than a privacy issue for you.  They absolutely despise you for wasting water like that and are planning to seek vengeance.  Repent before it's too late!
